Newham Swords Are Back!

After lots of consultation with SportsDock over the last month, staggering and adding sessions, we can now fit most of our fencers in!

Pierre and I are really looking forward to seeing our lovely Newham Swords family again after a six month break! Looking forward to September!

There is no drop-in fencing. All fencers must be invited to attend a specific session and time by contacting Linda.

Please note that the Friday Adult club remains suspended due to space limitations
